COVID-19 Vaccination Booster Programme – Winter 2021/22
The Collingham Medical Centre is supporting the Booster (3rd dose) COVID Vaccine Campaign for Newark and Collingham Districts.
This site is one of a number of locations you can receive your COVID booster – other services and locations can be found on the national booking system - Coronavirus (COVID-19) booster vaccine - NHS (www.nhs.uk) or dial 119.
Eligible patients need a minimum of 6 months between their last (primary dose) COVID Vaccine and their booster.
We have started to contact patients with mobile numbers with a text link to book directly into a slot … the text reads “Book your COVID Booster Vac at Collingham Hub, NG23 7LB” followed by a link which takes you straight to dates/times to choose at Collingham Medical Centre.
For patients without mobile numbers noted on your records, you can call 119 once you receive your invite to say you are eligible.
We aim to deliver a large part of this campaign at weekends at the Collingham Medical Centre in order not to disrupt your general practice services during the working week.
Thank you for your patience whilst we build these services and train the new dedicated team to support your COVID Boosters. Unfortunately, due to the timing of deliveries, we are not co-administering flu vaccines at Collingham. Please contact your own GP practice to book and receive your flu vaccination this Winter.
